A group of Chicago police officers turned their backs on the city’s controversial Mayor Lori Lightfoot over the weekend. They shunned the Mayor in response to the tragic shooting death of a female officer over the weekend.
Officer Ella French, 29, was fatally shot during a West Englewood with traffic stop Saturday night, according to reports. She had a two month old baby. Her partner and fellow officer is fighting for his life.
Violence in Chicago continues to escalate and unfortunately, Lightfoot passes the blame onto everything but her own failed Democratic policies.
Lightfoot was trying to speak to the officers as they waited at the University of Chicago Medical Center, reports stated.
According to reports a spokesman for Lightfoot said she was there to offer support and condolences to the families involved.
But the statement said, “In a time of tragedy, emotions run high. That’s to be expected.”
